Remote usability testing is becoming a very hot topic at the moment,
and we are looking for a junior analyst to join our team, mainly doing
remote user research, using our tool Webnographer.
What makes remote usability testing so exciting is that it reaches a
broader range of people and ages. We have even had a 89 year old
helping in our research.
Another aspect that makes the remote research a fascinating quest is
the phenomenon of context collapse. Users behave very differently when
they are alone, than when a researcher looks them over the shoulder.
This role is a great opportunity for you to apply creative and
analytical skills to the user research field. Creativity and knowledge
of different methods is required for the study design.
You will be working collaboratively with the research, marketing and
technology departments of our clients to design studies all over the
world, and then analysing the results, and presenting the findings back to
There will be a steep learning curve as “remote” is very different
than normal usability testing.
You don’t need to know anything about remote usability testing yet,
but a strong interest in Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology,
Linguistics, or Behavioural Economics will be an advantage.
The location of work will be Hastings in East Sussex, UK for the
intense training period, with the potential to work remotely once the
training is completed.
